La Vista-based Streck Inc. has grown steadily, bumping up its far-ranging workforce of scientists to salesmen to shipping clerks by about 60% in the past decade.
But as the global biotech company approached its 50th year, it needed a major piece of equipment to keep up with mounting demand. Not just any piece, either. Business called for a tailor-made, fast-moving machine that fills lab vials. Millions of them.
It was too big a fit for the current headquarters, so Streck is building a new $18 million facility nearby that will span 78,000 square feet.
